Alright, guys, it’s time to stop procrastinating. It’s almost Mother’s Day, and you need a gift for the woman who birthed you. It’s the least you can do, tbh. She did give you life, after all. Now, if you’re still divided on what to get the most important woman in your life, I GOT YOU. As a mother, (GASP) I am officially your Go-To for Mother’s Day gifting ideas. You are welcome.

Let’s face it. Times have changed and now it’s pretty damn difficult to find the perfect Mother’s Day gift. It needs to say “thank you for changing my diapers and watching 18 years of my soccer games and basketball games and cross country meets and karate matches and choir and theatre performances, and lying to the attendance office at school and telling them I was sick cuz I was too busy with 6 hours of extracurriculars to study for that damn government test, and not having a heart attack when I told you I was moving to California instead of going to college, and then MOVING to California because you found out I was having a baby.”         …Awkward.

THE POINT IS that it needs to show some serious appreciation, but it also needs to be cool. It’s 2018, and there are waaaaay too many eco-friendly, socially-minded, and beautifully designed goods to just present mom with a card and some flowers, let’s be real. BUTMOTHER’S DAY IS IN 2 DAYS. HOW THE HELL AM I GOING TO PULL THIS OFF?! Okay, first of all. You need to calm down. Yes, the clock IS ticking, but there is still time for you to not totally mess this up, and I’m here to help!
